ROAD users on the M4 and A419 as well as those around Swindon may experience some additional delays to their journey tomorrow morning.

An abnormal load is due to enter Wiltshire through Junction 18 of the M4 at about 10.30am, exiting via Junction 15 and onto the A419 before travelling northbound towards Rat Trap.

The load, comprising two panel presses, will exit at Rat Trap and travel along Highworth Road, Hobley Drive and then Swindon Road before arriving at their final destination - BMW Limited, Swindon Road.

The convoy will consist of two loads, both 4.9m wide and weighing 80t and 110t respectively (plus tractor units and associated private and police escort vehicles).

Due to both width and weight, the load will be both slow moving and have the potential to cause congestion at junctions and also within Swindon where oncoming traffic will be required to pull in and wait for the convoy to pass.

Wherever possible, disruption will be kept to a minimum although both hauliers and motorists are asked to please be patient should they come across the load. Anyone travelling over this period on time critical matters should allow sufficient additional time for their journey.

Police escorting resources are being provided by officers, paid for by the haulier at no cost to the public.
